Who can forget Cliff's booming voice, his laugh, his joy in being with his family and friends. Don't think we'll ever eat in a Cracker Barrel (one of his favorites) without thinking of him.
God's love and comfort during this time of grief.

Great Spirit, Great Spirit, My Grandfather,
All over the earth the faces of living things are all alike. . .
Look upon these faces of children without number
And with children in their arms,
That they may face the winds and
Walk the good road to the day of quiet. . .

There is no death. . .
Only a change of worlds. . .
Only a change of worlds...

Love ya Uncle Cliff. You will be missed. Good Journey...

Uncle Cliff had a joy for life rarely seen in these times. He loved his family and showed it openly. He treated me and my family as closer than the cousins we are, and we will never forget such a caring and genuine man such as he. Best godfather ever!! Love and miss you so much, from James Clifton, Monica Clifton Fabian, David Fabian, Mia McElroy and Marissa Fabian.
